St. Helena lies in the path of cool South Atlantic trade winds, with warm summers and only slightly cooler winters. With average temperatures of 20 degrees in January.
More than 1,000 miles from land and with just one main town, St Helena has zero light pollution, resulting in exceptional night skies — an uninterrupted dome of bright stars that stretch to the far-off horizon.
Hikes range in distance from 1.5km to 12km — from the short 45-minute scramble to a heart-shaped waterfall to the two-and-a-half-hour trek toward the summit of Diana’s Peak for 360-degree views of the island. Of course, many will argue the toughest hike of them all is scaling the 699 steps of Jacob’s Ladder, which stretches up the near-vertical rock face above Jamestown.
